Vision Executives Three Peaks Challenge, in aid of World Sight Day, is a particularly suitable fundraising effort to raise money for one of our three chosen charities: Himalayan Cataract Project.
One of the founding members, Dr Geoffrey Tabin, is a passionate mountain climber and has summitted Mount Everest when he witnessed a Dutch medical team perform a life changing cataract surgery in a Nepalese village on a woman who had been blind for several years. Her blindness was preventative, and this inspired Dr Tabin to become an ophthalmologist so that he could make a difference.
Dr. Geoffrey Tabin is the fourth person in the world to summit the highest peak on all seven continents. Such a personal feat can only be rivalled by the task he and Dr. Sanduk Ruit have undertaken – ‘eliminate preventable and curable blindness in under-resourced communities.’
